Would be a long day to do the hike and El Tuito on the same day.

Clarification - I meant - that both of Steve' posts on :
" things to do " - Puerto Vallarta

make a good - ( full ) day adventure .

The information included is worth keeping for your next PV visit ,
whether that visit is next month or next year .

Boca de Tomatlan as far as Playa Los Colomitos

In town, but upriver from most of the town, are two bridges. there is a concrete walk bridge that may or may not be accessible, looks like it has had many repairs. It was in ok repairs when I used it. Upriver just a bit from that is a suspension bridge that appears to be private.

Trail at one time had lots of care and rails and steps and tree identification signs. Most of the rails are deteriorated, most of the steps are deteriorated, the trail is well traveled but not well kept, lots of trash.

Playa Los Colomitos is a bit different, while Steve's pictures were undoubtedly taken at low tide, I think there is less sand than when he was there. I was there at high tide and there was no beach and the steps on the far side were way above the water. I'm thinking the water, which was a couple feet deep below the steps, was as far below the steps as Steve's beach was six years ago. Be prepared to get wet to get across and get up the other side.

The trail follows the coast pretty much but is very much jungle. I came back from Playa Los Colomitos on a second, much higher, trail that was very seldom used by anyone and not attended to very well. Easy to follow, it was at one time well laid out and marked. IN the few spots where the sun hit the trail it was completely overgrown.
